More on Martin Luther King
By coincidence, I was watching themartin_luther_king_jr_freedom.jpg U2 Vertigo Tour DVD last night when the band  U2 began playing Pride (In the Name of Love) which is a tribute to Martin Luther King.  I had been thinking about writing a post for Martin Luther King Day and his inspiration as a  leader.  This song is a great reminder of the power of King's message.  Another of my favorite U2 songs is also MLK.

Martin Luther King has provided us with several quotes that offer inspiration to leaders and followers alike.

Favorite King quotes:

“Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.”

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

For more inspiration, read MLK’s I have a Dream.

I have heard and read many eloquent tributes to Martin Luther King, Jr. over the years. None as heart- felt as the song "Pride" by the rock-group U2. It exemplifies the struggle of the 1960's civil rights movement, that so many fought for on different battlefields from Viet Nam to an Alabama bus. Because of my lack of poetic justice to Martin Luther King, Jr. I offer these words to him , "free at last they took your life but they could not take pride." Your dream is still our dream.
P.S. Happy B-Day!

This is GREAT! My son attends MLK in Georgia, he is also a band member. I was looking for graphics and found this page via GOOGLE images. Check out this link: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2248770201
